Diary of St. Faustina...on the Indwelling Presence of God

“I am aware that You are dwelling in me, together with the Father and the Holy Spirit, or rather I am aware that it is I who am living in You, O incomprehensible God! (...) I have come to know You within my heart, and I have loved You above all things that exist on earth or in heaven” (Diary, 478). “I look for no happiness beyond my own interior where God dwells. I rejoice that God dwells within me; here I abide with Him unendingly; it is here that my greatest intimacy with Him exists; here I dwell with Him in safety; here is a place not probed by the human eye. The Blessed Virgin encourages me to commune with God in this way” (Diary, 454).
